Issue Report: Steam overlay disappears when scrolling through the ingame browser
While ingame (in TF2 for example), I open the Steam overlay and try to browse through the achievements in the ingame browser. After a short period of time scrolling through the achievement list (1 - 2 seconds, I click on the "handle" and hold it and scroll through it by moving my mouse), the Steam overlay disappears and I'm back in TF2. When I reopen the Steam overlay, the ingame browser is stll there and at the exact point, where I scrolled to, though scrolling again let's the Steam overlay disappear again.

I'm not quite sure if scrolling with the mouse wheel triggers this problem. Sometimes, the Steam overlay disappears, sometimes it does not. And I can't see, if it depends on the scrolling speed or not.

I'm on KDE 4.8.5/Kubuntu 12.04.
